Jul 23rd 2010 4:58PM @Golgoret -Right, so by that logic for the failure of the Kin, nothing any fortune 500 cranks out will succeed. Brilliant for explaining away the issue of committee'ing away both success and responsibility in fractured chains of command. So it's either mediocrity or the cult of personality that apple cranks out; appropriated q-ratings or a tin hitler. Awesome.
Jul 22nd 2010 10:04PM What I don't get, is how everyone knew it would crash and burn, except for Microsoft? Don't they have any kind of real-world input influencing their quarter-billion dollar gambles? As SOON as this thing started making the rounds, people scoffed. Microsoft CAN'T do this type of thing well--they just can't; never have been able to.

Jul 4th 2010 10:59AM Fantastic. So readers shouldn't bother reading articles with unnecessary insider jargon? "brings WASD to your PS3" vs. "replaces controller with Keyboard/Mouse on your PS3" -Awesome. Must be the goal of every blog looking to make a profit; tell the exact same story, but use language that shrugs off a bunch of your readers. -Wicked-fresh! As this is happening more and more on Engadget, I'll know to just jump to another pop-tech blog bookmark.
Jul 3rd 2010 7:23PM @ChrisG: I'm not a gamer, but then neither is Engadget a gamer site. I shouldn't have to be a gamer to understand an article on a peripheral for a popular entertainment console. And the whole "under a rock" thing is my point in one; who's the target audience for this site? I've been reading it for six years now, several times a day, so I'd be surprised to find that it's no longer me.
Jul 3rd 2010 6:12PM what the hell is WASD? -oh, it's the inverted-t mimicking the arrow keys on a keyboard? -for real? it's great trying to keep up to speed on tech-stories with a bunch of esoteric crap to sort through, that's showing up fifth on a google search to boot. shouldn't we all just KNOW what the hell WASD is referring to? quit impressing your friends and inform your goddamned readers!
Jul 1st 2010 1:57PM What's up with the color indicator? It's redundant to the number and rating-bar length to begin with, but then you've assigned counter-intuitive colors for ratings. Red is better! Green, not so much! -What the what?
